Much appreciated! Thanks MGoArchive. Can you post these links for football games too?

And you are why I don’t like this blog anymore and only check it 2-3x daily and use adblocker. 

Move been on here since 2005, btw. 

02/12/2019 - 10:40am @GoBlueSean,

You are being…

@GoBlueSean,

You are being negged, but isn't this essentially what happened with DJ Durkin before the OSU game, when he interviewed with Maryland instead of preparing (granted a DC and DL coach have very different impacts on a game).

02/04/2019 - 1:28pm So, do we all finally…

So, do we all finally understand that Harbaugh is looking for a certain kind/ type of player that always doesn’t = rivals/ 247 rankings?

Lol. In Jersey everyone is corrupt. 

01/31/2019 - 4:17pm Mods, we don’t need this…

Mods, we don’t need this snowflake. 

Trump is an asshole. Ban me and delete this dunbass thread.

She must not be a true OSU fan, otherwise she’d know to STFU... cooler poopers and all. 

01/30/2019 - 4:54pm The fine isn’t an actual…

The fine isn’t an actual penalty. They will just get more tax money and jack up fees/ tuition for students/ skim money from academic departments (screwing students). Big Deal

01/30/2019 - 4:44pm I’m not saying the selling…

I’m not saying the selling points in the article are true or that they are not exaggerated, but if that’s why he choose OSU, he’s afraid of competition and an idiot. 

01/30/2019 - 9:29am OP, Maizen is a known troll…

OP, Maizen is a known troll and that thread is 2 years old.

01/24/2019 - 3:42pm What? Is this a jhoke?

What? Is this a jhoke?

I'll see myself out now.

01/24/2019 - 8:55am PSU took a bunch of lower…

PSU took a bunch of lower rates guys when they were freshly sanctioned and Bill O’Brien went to the NFL. 

Their portal kids have mostly been passed over by very good classes by Franklin. Thankfully, Franklin is a terrible coach and doesn’t have Moorehead. 

01/23/2019 - 12:12pm That’s false. There are a…

That’s false. There are a ton of NFL scouts at the bigger bowl games, if for no other reason than to catch a late rounder. 

Pretty much every Bowl game I watched talked about NFL scouts in the audience and who they might be focused on. 

01/23/2019 - 12:00pm Seems awkward all around.

Seems awkward all around.

Who makes more than their boss, especially when the boss man was brought on because the CEO thought you didn’t perform according to expectations?

Also, Gattis is supposed to also coach WEs and make less money? If this happened at OSU, I’d be lol-ing all off season. 

01/22/2019 - 12:38pm I think the bodyblow…

I think the bodyblow philosophy is the issue. I think I've said it before here, but I remember watching a game and the announcer said he spoke to Pep earlier and Pep wants to go "deep" once a quarter or so to keep teams honest. 

With an NFL caliber QB and 3 4*+ WRs on the team, that seems way too infrequent and just assumes the Defense will keep it close, so Michigan doesn't need to score a lot of points in a hurry.

I think it's subtle things like the philosophy of the OC (also no need for a lot of no-huddle or tempo, because 99% of the time, Don Brown is going to hold the opponent to <21 points).

01/22/2019 - 8:55am What do other boards …

What do other boards (specifically our rivals) do? I know OSU has 11W, but don't know the flagship ND or MSU blogs (and I don't mean the 247 or Rivals boards).

Do they speculate on players leaving, not playing...?

Also, the Ulizio example isn't a great one, because the first quote is insulting to a current player. The "no way that ..." implies that the player isn't very good. Why couldn't player names be used in the 2nd example e.g. "... non-renewed 5th years (Jblaze & Jblaze's dog are my guess)"?

01/17/2019 - 12:50pm They can create an insurance…

They can create an insurance captive that only writes toward brain injuries and is funded through a "fee" on NFL and CFB tickets and a small fee on youth football players. The NFL (and CFB) make enough money that this shouldn't be an issue.

01/16/2019 - 9:57pm A. He shouldn’t have added…

A. He shouldn’t have added back ND to the schedule, but I think it’s what Harbaugh wanted. 

Maldonado, outside of this blog, I had no idea about the women’s gymnastics hire and her history. Outside of the state of Michigan, nobody cares. 

01/16/2019 - 8:11am It's a rumor from "insiders"…

It's a rumor from "insiders". The insider's message that I read (not on Mgo) is from a dude who's connected to the program, but I don't know if his source (actual Michigan football or another poster on a different board).

01/16/2019 - 8:09am Fields' waiver is a direct…

Fields' waiver is a direct reflection of the power of OSU's AD (is it still Gene Smith?). This is why AD's get the big money, not hiring womens volleyball coaches. It's also why lifetime administrators are better than CEOs or football players/ announcers (e.g. Lynn Swan).

01/16/2019 - 8:07am Brian, Mods: This is why we…

Brian, Mods: This is why we need negbangs for OPs

01/15/2019 - 10:11am The core of Gattis’…

The core of Gattis’ offensive philosophy is the same as Harbaugh’s. Michigan will still look to pound defenses with the run game. Where Gattis’ impact on the approach will likely manifest in the level of belligerence exhibited when trying to establish that ground attack. In other words, if the body blow approach isn’t winning rounds, Gattis won’t be averse changing his strategy between rounds. Even early in a fight.

This is what we all wanted...let's hope it works.

01/14/2019 - 3:35pm Yup, Benedict Mattison took…

!

01/14/2019 - 3:33pm According to this, Michigan…

According to this, Michigan has 46 NFL Players in 2016 and NJ had 50, so they are about the same in terms of talent level (Ohio was at 80!).

01/14/2019 - 9:34am Even if she was railroaded…

Even if she was railroaded and did her job, why should Michigan hire her? It's like UT hiring Schiano. Sure he's a good enough coach and likely didn't do anything wrong, but there are so many alternatives that are just as good and aren't mentioned in any scandal.

01/11/2019 - 9:00pm Yoder is a scumbag. Also,…

Yoder is a scumbag. Also, Greg Henson crushed him on Twitter about a week or so ago. 

Lol. 

01/11/2019 - 12:40pm My best guess is that…

My best guess is that Locksley got his dream job as a HC at Maryland and that Saban didn't think Gattis or Enos were ready/ good enough to be the OC. It's unconfirmed if Enos was offered the OC position.

Saban knew Gattis was gone when Locksley offered him the OC job. Saban didn't match, so everybody just assumed the new OC was Enos, but either he got more control or Saban wanted to go in another direction.

01/11/2019 - 12:20pm He was in a Jersey feud with…

He was in a Jersey feud with Partridge. Opposite sidelines of powerhouses in the NJ Parochial League.

Like Tony Soprano, Harbaugh got these two to squash their beef.

01/10/2019 - 3:52pm I'm not sure Pep didn't have…

I'm not sure Pep didn't have that freedom. I remember in one of the body blow comments, an announcer said that Pep likes to go deep about once a quarter to stretch the field. That's about what we did and the announcer specifically mentioned to talking to Pep beforehand.

01/10/2019 - 2:46pm Gerg. We don't even spell…

Gerg. We don't even spell his damn name correctly.

01/09/2019 - 3:08pm Hurts to OSU to play in 2019…

Hurts to OSU to play in 2019. Fields to OSU to play in 2020.

01/08/2019 - 7:31pm Canada put up 50 on OSU …

Canada put up 50 on OSU (with Maryland players), so maybe we want him?

01/08/2019 - 12:42pm Washington also worked with…

Washington also worked with Don Brown, Michigan has the same money cannon, and although we consistently lose to OSU, are the same caliber program.

01/08/2019 - 11:22am Who did he recruit? Mattison…

Who did he recruit? Mattison and Washington missed their #1 prospect (Harrison).

Also, Harbaugh (and Brown, assuming he doesn't go to Temple) could have matched his salary at OSU (since he's a position coach), but choose not to and Brown coached with him at BC, so they have a plan or don't value Washington as much as OSU does.

01/08/2019 - 11:15am That's a dumb way of…

That's a dumb way of thinking. Look at Clemson and ND's schedules. That's how they got to the playoffs. Look at SEC non-conference schedules. That's why an SEC team is always in the playoffs.

Michigan has not been smart with scheduling at all.

01/08/2019 - 10:30am Harbaugh and Michigan are…

Harbaugh and Michigan are not going to say anything about a former coach, because it's classless and the coaching profession is a small, insulated world.

That's why Webb said something to the effect that he was told that Michigan did not non-renew Mattison's contract and we wanted him.

Mattison is a very good DL coach and a decent DC, but Michigan needs to bring in fresh talent to recruit and introduce new ideas.

It isn't desperation for OSU either. They have their DC-in-waiting (regardless of what you think about him) who is young and will learn under Mattison and then Mattison will retire, a few million richer than if he stayed a DL coach at Michigan.

01/07/2019 - 8:30pm The NFL is so desperate for…

The NFL is so desperate for a young offensive coach, they hire a crappy OC and recently fired Kliff Kingsberry is being looked at like a God. 

01/07/2019 - 5:05pm This will come down to how…

This will come down to how much Harbaugh wants Washington.

We have the same money cannon that they do, Don Brown knows Washington as much/ more than Day and Michigan can offer Washington DL or LBs. The question is, does Harbaugh want/ value Washington?

01/07/2019 - 1:23pm and Durkin.

and Durkin.

01/07/2019 - 1:21pm His contract may have been…

His contract may have been up and Enos did go to an SEC team (so money can solve that issue).

01/07/2019 - 1:20pm Assuming that Don Brown goes…

Assuming that Don Brown goes to Temple, how happy would we all be if:

  • Mattison were promoted to DC
  • Washington or Partridge gets the DL and we hire a new defensive position coach?

I think the answer is that we'd all be like WTF?

01/07/2019 - 12:26pm I love election season. It…

I love election season. It allows me to point out how stupid 1/2 of the country is.

01/07/2019 - 9:50am Bama will win big. My hope…

Bama will win big. My hope is that Saban retires and Dabo takes the Bama job. Then Clemson fades away and Bama becomes human.

As a side note, Clemson has a true Freshman QB. Imagine that!

01/07/2019 - 9:37am I don't know about the West…

I don't know about the West Coast, but 2-3 years in NYC makes mid-Westerners "New Yorkers", so...

01/06/2019 - 8:47am Bama and Clemson have like…

Bama and Clemson have like 23 2019 NFL draft picks combined playing tomorrow (11-12 on average per team).

Michigan has like 4 (in an NFL based offense). That’s the only stat that matters

01/04/2019 - 10:12am Why do we have posbangs?

It…

Why do we have posbangs?

It just gives trolls points to make them look legit and not like trolls for other posts. It's especially true since we can't negbang OPs (unless they comment in the actual post).

01/04/2019 - 8:57am LOL. He has 3rd string 5*…

LOL. He has 3rd string 5* RBs. How hard is it to "change" with the times. He's just allowing his OCs to tweak the offense, depending on which 5* QB they happen to sign.

01/03/2019 - 9:11am Wasn't the "former NFL RB…

Wasn't the "former NFL RB and All-American just fired" from the Jags?

01/02/2019 - 2:41pm It will be interesting to…

It will be interesting to see where Long is drafted. He wasn't thrown at much and so doesn't have great stats, but he may be the best cover corner that we have had in a long, long time (I think better than JD). I guess his combine performance will make or break his draft position.

 

01/02/2019 - 11:57am No. Here's why:

1) 15 extra…

No. Here's why:

1) 15 extra practices

2) Money for the school/ conference

3) Exposure for potential NFL players (NFL scouts are at these games)

4) Free trip and bowl game swag for players

5) An 11 win season would have been super nice (even with the ND and OSU losses).
